Update: Bandai Namco has released the trailer with official English-language subtitles. It can be found below. Our original post follows.
It's climaxes all around, as Kamen Rider Climax Fighters gets an extended trailer detailing many of the action game's play mechanics, special features, and character dynamics. Based upon the extensive Kamen Rider superhero franchise, in which cyborgs, revived murder victims, and video game-addicted doctors to name a few, suit up to battle monsters bent upon terrorizing the innocent. This time, the heroes are facing each other, in an all-out brawl of epic proportions. And it's not just the lead heroes of each annual series that have shown up to the party. A host of Secondary Riders is signing up to join the action.
Among this colorful crew of s...
On a day unlike any other, he came, he saw, he died like a hundred times. It's the maniacal Dan Kuroto, the sometimes antiheroic, always antihumble video game supervillain known as Kamen Rider Genm, in his twisted Dangerous Zombie form from the Kamen Rider Ex-Aid TV series. And here to give us a taste of what we may be coughing up our hard-earned coin for is toy reviewer extraordinaire Vangelus, ready to drop some knowledge bombs down your drainpipe, with no continues.

They're passing out wars like candy these days, aren't they? This time, it's for Kamen Rider City Wars, the new mobile game where you're tasked with building your own city from the ground up, potentially filled with memorable landmarks and totem locations from the decades-spanning Kamen Rider superhero franchise. Heroes and villains from every era are joining the party, from the original Kamen Rider Ichigo to this year's Kamen Rider Ex-Aid and Kamen Rider Build, and the dozens in-between, all fighting to save their city from costumed evildoers.
This free-to-play smartphone app proved so popular in pre-registration that Bandai Namco Entertainment is offering 250 Hero Stones, Tech Cards, and bonus gasha, but this gift is only available until December 26.
We're back on the air and ready to podcast once again! Apologies for the long hiatus, but I've been doing some "wandering of the Earth" and have stories from Japan to bring back as well as how my world of toku has grown since last we recorded. My audio at first is kinda off, cuz my computer is a bit crappy these days. So, at times there's delays between when i say something and when the others respond. That clears up by time we talk about build, so hang in there!
In the podcast we do some catching, discussing the past couple years of toku, some passing impressions of Kamen Rider Drive, some Ghost talk as well. And we delve a little into the Ultraman Universe as well.
But the main show and what you've been waiting for... is first out discussion of the FREAKING AWESOME Kamen Ri...
New posters for this winter's Kamen Rider mega-crossover event, Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FINAL: Build & Ex-Aid with Legend Riders, have surfaced, and we've got our microscopes handy for some good old-fashioned speculation about what these images could mean for the landmark film. As the headlining Kamen Rider Build takes center stage as the final Rider series of this decades-long franchise to air during Japan's Heisei Era, this can be seen as the closing chapter of an epic saga. At least until next year, where we inevitably start all over again.
First, the beautious new posters for the film, featuring the star-studded cast of superheroic figures of past and present, among which are a few actors that many Rider fans never believed they'd see again.
From left to r...
Let the rubber bodies hit the floor, with this sickass trailer for the all-new Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FINAL: Build & Ex-Aid with Legend Riders. This winter Kamen Rider film brings together a host of legends from the franchise's recent history, including Kamen Rider Build, Kamen Rider Ex-Aid, Kamen Rider Gaim, Kamen Rider Fourze, and more.
Now, I know this is a movie, but I didn't expect this trailer to make it look so much like a movie!
There's a highly cinematic quality to the editing style chosen for this presentation that I am completely okay with. Of course, we know that it's still going to be the usual "really expensive TV episode" flavor that pervades the whole event in actuality, but I love the degree of serious prestig...

The account revealed that Masamune Dan/Kamen Rider Cronus will appear in all three films. Last time we saw him is at the show's finale in whic...
The hits just keep on coming for the new Kamen Rider Build, as Sento flies higher, the story goes deeper, and one character may find out just how much chains and guns excite them.
After trolling Ryuuga through another flawless recap, Sento kicks us off by holding Kamen Rider 101 with his star pupil (doubtlessly because he's the only one there), Ryuuga himself. He goes over the chain of events that have lead us to this point, searching for Nabeshima, the man who knocked out Ryuuga before Faust could haul him off to the monster farm. This scene is so ridiculous. I don't even know how it's possible that Ryuuga doesn't understand his own backstory, which he lived through and remembers perfectly well now, and yet he needs Sento to go over it all again, complete with a marker board and visu...
Bandai Tamashii Nations has previewed two new S.H. Figuarts sure to be added to many toy collections in the coming year.
First up, here are the official images of the S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Brave Legacy Gamer Level 100 from the Kamen Rider Ex-Aid TV series.
Can we talk about the new Kamen Rider Build? I have to talk about this. I need to be reassured that I'm seeing what I'm seeing and that it's not going to be taken away from me when they finally realize what they've done and decide it's all a really expensive mistake. This is too much of what I wanted all at once. Who's about to get fired for this magnificence?!
The brilliance begins at minute one, with the greatest recap ever committed to film. The braggadocious smarty-pants Kiryuu Sento and his new fugitive pal Banjou Ryuuga have dueling summaries, bantering even as they tell us what happened in last week's premiere episode. I already love these idiots and it's only been like twenty minutes. Please tell me I can keep them, mommy!
After the recap, we get our first look at the openi...
